Web Video: Find Makarov
Find Makarov is a series of Web Original Fan Films based on the Modern Warfare series and notable for very high quality acting and special effects. Details Captain Price and "Soap" MacTavish's quest to eliminate the decoy Big Bad of the second game (and actual of the third), Vladimir Makarov.

So far, two films have been released:

  • Find Makarov is largely a live-action retelling of the MW2 ending, followed by a teaser of Price and Soap paradropping in Moscow during the US invasion of Russia.
  • Operation Kingfish is an Interquel between two first games, made with Activision's blessing, that tells of the eponymous assassination attempt on Makarov gone bad. Shows how Price was captured by the Russians.

The films themselves aren't entirely canon note  but they're still fun.

Tropes found in this series include:

  • Brave Scot: Soap.
  • Call Forward: Soap putting the knife into Makarov's eye at the end of Kingfish.
  • Death from Above: Spectre.
  • Foregone Conclusion: If you've played Modern Warfare 2, you already know how Find Makarov and especially Op. Kingfish will end. Doesn't mean they are not worth watching, though.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Frankly, the AC-130 in Operation Kingfish deserved to be shot down for flying that low near enemies armed with MANPADs. Idiots.
  • You Shall Not Pass: Price in Kingfish.
